THE CLUGSTON LINCOLNSHIRE NATIONAL
The racing highlight of Boxing Day racing is invariably the Clugston Lincolnshire National. At three and three-quarter miles, the contest is the longest race in the racecourse’s calendar.
There have been two Lincolnshire-trained winners in the last seven years in Soudain and Gonalston Cloud, while race-goers with longer memories will recall Victory Gunner’s hat-trick of victories between 2005 and 2007.
Every year the Clugston Lincolnshire National produces a headline. In 2015, James Banks booted West Of The Edge to victory to complete a double on the day for him and trainer Dai Williams who had made the long journey from west Wales. In 2016, as many as five horses had a chance at the last fence before Gonalston Cloud, from the Nick Kent stables in Brigg and ridden by Adam Wedge, pulled out a bit more to take the prize ahead of Amiral Collonges. In 2017, Amiral Collonges was an unlucky runner-up again, having to give second best to 7-1 chance Cyclop. Last year, Bridget Andrews rode the Dan Skelton-trained Ange Des Malberaux to victory.
